Who is Debbie Abraham and Why is she deported from India?

Debbie Abraham is a British MP and Labor Party, leader. She is critical of the government’s decisions on Kashmir under Article 370. Yesterday her e-visa was revoked due to her involvement in anti-India activities. She had reached Delhi on a two-day visit. Harpreet Uppal, who accompanied her, told the news agency that her valid Indian visa was rejected by the authorities at the airport. Officials did not give any reason for the cancellation of Abraham’s visa, while the visa was valid until October 2020. At the same time, a Home Ministry official, on the condition of anonymity, said that Abraham did not have a valid visa to travel. Hence she was barred from entering India. She was put on the UK return flight from Delhi Airport. 

The British MP stated “When he came back he was very rude and aggressive shouting at me to ‘come with me’. I told him not to speak to me like that and was then taken to a cordoned-off area marked as a Deportee Cell. He then ordered me to sit down and I refused. I didn’t know what they might do or where else they may take me, so I wanted people to see me,”

Although she has justified in a twitter post that e-visa has been issued by the Indian Government.

Sources in the government said, “It is the prerogative of the country to grant a visa or e-visa to any person, to cancel it or to cancel its application. Her e-business visa was canceled by the government on 14 February 2020, in view of activities against India’s interests. Abraham was also informed by the government about the cancellation of his visa. ”

The politics heated over it as one of the Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi supported sending Debbie Abraham back from the airport. Singhvi tweeted on Tuesday – “It was necessary to stop Debbie from coming to India because she works as a representative of Pakistan, not an MP.” She is associated with the Government of Pakistan and the ISI. It is necessary to thwart attempts to attack India’s autonomy.

 Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on the other hand given a statement “that it is being said on behalf of the British MP that he had a valid visa, yet he was not allowed to enter India”. They believe that this has happened because of their views on Kashmir.

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor further said that I think it is unfortunate. By not allowing such people to enter India, we will be considered a country with a narrow mind and intolerant, which is not right for our country, there is diversity in our country. We have the ability to tolerate negative attitudes of people coming from outside.
